Clients & Testimonials
I had the need for a private jet to carry our owner’s wife to an urgent meeting in New York while we were docked in Aruba. I contacted GMT at midnight and we were wheels up at 0800. Everything went smoothly with very little work for the crew and I. GMT took care of everything. We’ll always use GMT for our air charter requests.
J. Flemming, Yacht Captain
Thank you for the great customer service in getting this resolved… I was clearly frustrated at the time but this episode and the actions of GMT and its employees in resolving the issue quickly and professionally has given me a whole new appreciation for your company. Many Thanks and Kind Regards.
S. Czuplak, Yacht Captain
It has been so helpful to have the support of GMT Manila from day 1. With all the crew changes we’ve had in the past 18 months, I can hardly imagine how this intricate process could have gone with any marine travel agency other than GMT.
J. Ikenaga, Orient Line Corp.
I have used your company for many years and recommend you to yacht owners, management companies, and Captain friends. Thank you as always for your amazing teamwork. Best regards,
G. Smith, Yacht Captain
The Apostleship of the Sea of the United States of America has worked with GMT for several years, flying our Cruise Ship Priests to meet their ships. During this time of pandemic their staff was absolutely fabulous and worked quickly to help get each of our priests home. In addition, when we began receiving the e-mails from GMT regarding flights available for crew repatriation, we realized that GMT was working to find a way to make Crew Change HAPPEN! With so many seafarers around the world stuck onboard, or stuck at home, unable to work, it was heartening to see GMT working hard, rather than throwing up their hands. Thank you GMT for caring for the thousands of seafarers who need crew change. We salute you and support your efforts!

I cannot say enough great things about the service I have received from GMT Cruiselink (Global Marine Travel). Gerda P. has been extremely fast to respond with good information and assistance whenever I have send her an email. She has also worked hard to get waivers from airlines for refunds when she could have told me “it cannot be done.”
This vendor is truly an outstanding partner that is a prime example of the good things a great vendor and business partner can do. I know there are others that do good work, and I have used them with mixed results. GMT and Gerda have simply stood out in a crowd as if they were a true part of my franchise.

Over the years I have worked with many members of the GMT team, and I must tell you, and you are MY “Go To” Air Consolidator at Cruise Planners. I know we have others, but Kathy and your other Team Member’s support is “worth their weight in gold”.

Thanks to the efforts of Global Marine Travel, we were able to send 56 crew members home to the Philippines today through a shared charter flight. It’s been extraordinarily complicated to repatriate crew home due to the closure of ports and travel restrictions, and it’s so important to be able to get these colleagues home.
G. Howell, Senior Director of Guest Services, Windstar Cruises
Thank you so very much for getting my son, an established yacht crew member, home. I work for an Australia federal politician and have been dealing with travel exemptions and stranded Australians for months! Currently there are over 27,000 stranded Australians overseas (mainly in Europe) due to COVID. What you have done is extraordinary! I would be more than happy to recommend your agency to our stranded constituents. Again, my heartfelt and deep appreciation for your efforts on my son’s behalf.
D. Wiltshire, Electorate Constituent Adviser
You have all been exceptional to get us through these more difficult times with crew movements.
C. Griffiths, Chief Stewardess | Purser
Your team has been amazing as always with all of our logistics, especially in these trying times.
S. Mason, Yacht Captain
Thank you GMT Team – always open and always around the help. So patient with multiple requests and last minute changes – nothing is ever too much trouble. Your excellent service feels very personal like we all know each other as people rather than just an email address. The agents seamlessly pick up where the other left off, yet provide excellent continuity. Keep up the good work and attention to detail, GMT.
J. Paton, Purser
I had the pleasure of dealing with Kathy T. who after numerous enquires and changes of itinerary was able to secure us with the flights we required. She did so promptly and efficiently as this was a complicated booking. So pleased with the service we received which was also a busy time over the Xmas period. Thank you again Global Marine Travel for your excellent service.
L. Langford, The World – Luxury Residences at Sea
Just wanted to say thank you so much for the Charter flight for Symphony. Everything went very well and we managed to make a big movement go very smoothly. Mark was very helpful and I appreciate your team for all the flight assistance, they are great at what they do!
T. Botes, Crew Accountant, M/S Crystal Symphony
We had a client who had booked non-refundable flights with Celebrity but ended up needing new flights so I found her one-way flights home from her transatlantic cruise through GMT that were under $500 per person. The going rate through United was $2000+ and Celebrity was $1400+. These rates were so low that her friends who had booked through another (non-Cruise Planners) travel agent were convinced I booked her fake flights. Needless to say, our client was very happy.
I also want to mention that Kathy was very helpful and went above and beyond the other day when assisting me with a time change for another set of clients.
I appreciate how easy your (CruiseLink) site is to use and that your team is always accessible. Thank you so much!!
